For a good while, Jen was a bit of a mystery to Christian. She was a picture he had seen on the wall, the sister of his friend Michael. Although he had spend a lot of time fishing with both Michael and Michael's father and heard a lot about Jen, he had yet to met her in person since she was, at the time, living away from the Jersey shore.
Then, finally, they did meet. And she was everything her family had said she was and so much more - beautiful, smart, funny - and, as Christian would realize quickly, exactly the kind of woman he needed in his life. She was no longer a mystery. In short order, they learned as much about one another as possible.
Of course, Jen's family was delighted. They had enjoyed spending time with Christian for quite a while, so when he proposed to Jen it was making official what had been true for quite some time - that he was a part of the family.
